Spring Porch

The weather here in Eastern New Mexico is just gorgeous today.....high 60's.....light breeze....plenty of sun...couldn't ask for a prettier day.

H has been cleaning  the front porch and I have been adding touches of spring decor.....

I used the same spring wreath on the front door that I made last year....still love it.    

This china cabinet is one of the first things that H and I bought when we got's over 40 years old.    I have the doors stored in the attic...and we have painted the dark wood pink  ( it has also been white a few years ago)      anyway,  it is still in good shape and I hope we have it another 40!

I have Spring bunnies..... 

and birds on the shelves.

I hung 3 geranium baskets on the porch this morning

H wheeled the vintage wheel  chairs out of the garage .    The one on the right needs a new seat and back,   but H will take care of that

If you look close at the tree in the very top left of the can see the buds!  

 Spring is almost here!


  1. Penny I just LOVE your blog. You are so good about posting new and fresh things several times a week. I always start my day or evening checking your blog. Your home is beautiful and I appreciate you sharing it with us.

  2. Penny, I just love that wreath, its just gorgeous! love the Geranium sign, the bunnies, the whole porch is just beautiful. Enjoy your pretty spring day


  3. I am crazy for the hanging light with the roses on it and the ironwork at the window!
    I am so looking forward to greeting spring!

  4. Oh, how I wish I were sitting on your lovely porch right now. Here in CT, I still have a couple of feet of snow on my lawn and deck. I know spring is on its way, but it is difficult to get in the mood when surrounded by all of this white stuff. Love the window frame and garland - great idea.

  5. I would like to be your neighbour! Your porch looks fabulous in every single detail.

  6. Wonderful darling! It is has been warmer here too, but cooler by the middle of the week. I too am adding some spring to the porch this week.... need to get sewing more pillows! xxx...

  7. Your place is looking like Spring there, Penny. You are so lucky to be that close to it. We are about 2 months away from full Spring weather. They say we have snow coming on Friday most likely- xo Diana

  8. Penny, you never cease to amaze me with your gorgeous decorating! You're such an inspiration!

  9. Hi Penny, S'me again! It was in the 90's again today..but beautiful. Still hoping for some Spring rain..or should I say April showers. Don't folks slow down and stare are your home? I honestly think I would, even if I risked having you see me. It's just amazing. I head for here every morning to see what new loveliness you have to share with us. I love your wreath and wish, wish, wish it was mine! I cannot seem to find mine. Sort of wondering if I need..a new one? :)
    Your bunnies are some of the cutest ever!! I love mine and keep them out all year long. I can't wait to see what H does with the wheel chairs.

  10. Penny,
    It definitely looks like Spring at your house!! Love how your front porch inviting!!
    We had a heat wave last week with temps. close to 50 and most of the snow is melting but there are still banks of it in places.
    However, it is supposed to be coler this week and they are calling for snow on Friday!! I still have to take down my outside WInter decorations!! YIKES!!


  11. Penny, what a beautiful porch you have! I am pinning this :) Thank you for sharing on the Art of Home-Making Mondays!

  12. I'm jealous of your early spring! It will be a few more weeks here, but I can feel it coming. Your porch and yard are looking great. Love that little clothespin valance I see in a couple of your pictures! Thank you for sharing it and your tips for frugal and fun decorating at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!
    Blessings, Deborah
